The project brief was to revitalise and expand the 10-year-old workplace of one of the world’s most recognisable financial tech brands. Planning, design and amenities were re-assessed to reflect the organization's new ways of work and collaboration whilst maintaining its design principles of transparency, hospitality and energy. The new design was to encourage informal, technology-enabled collaborative work settings outside of structured meeting rooms.
New informal meeting pods were designed around major circulation
areas, the guest pantry was given a complete refresh, and the auditorium was reconfigured for multi-functional use and to incorporate global AV standards.
A new floor was added to the stack. We stripped the existing staircase and void to its structure, and refurbished it to a new look, while extending the stairs to reach the new level.
Graphite Studio worked with the design stakeholders of our client to design and deliver the refreshed workspace with construction works planned around daily business operations.
